American Melodic Death Metallers Light This City announce first European tour dates confirmed for September
Bay Area melodic death metal outfit Light This City announces the band's first ever European tour, confirmed for the end of summer, as the band continues to support of their acclaimed Terminal Bloom LP, released last year through Creator-Destructor Records.
Terminal Bloom, Light This City's first album in a decade, boasts ten tracks that capture their tendency towards extreme melody and intensity, honoring the Swedish sounds of the '90s. Having spent the past decade performing and touring in numerous other bands, the five members of Light This City have only honed and shaped their skills and musicianship since their 2008-released Stormchaser. Terminal Bloom was recorded from December 2017 through February 2018 with Zack Ohren (Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation, Fallujah) at Castle Ultimate Studios in Oakland, California, as with their previous four albums, and is wrapped in the vibrant cover artwork of Tony Midi.
Following several tours throughout the US and Canada, as well as their first tour of Mexico, and a recent tour of Japan, Light This City now confirms their maiden trip across the Atlantic. The band's European Bloom Part 1 trek will begin September 12th and run through Germany, Denmark, Holland, Austria, Italy, and Switzerland, coming to an end on September 21st. Watch for additional tour dates to be announced in the months ahead as the band continues to book new ventures.
Drummer Ben Murray states:-
"We couldn't be more excited to finally bring our thrash attack to Europe! This is just part 1 of our plan to tour Europe, as we'll be announcing another run early next year. If you live in one of these cities, we hope you make it out to one of the shows! It's been fifteen years since we began as a band, and we've wanted to get to Europe the whole time. See you in September!"

Terminal Bloom is available on CD, LP, and digital formats now through Creator-Destructor Records. Find order options at the label webstore HERE and Bandcamp where the album is streaming HERE.

A true clash of the titans, America’s pre-eminent multiplatinum chart-topping hard rock band Five Finger Death Punch unite with renowned chart-topping European legends In Flames to co-headline what promises to be the biggest and most exciting arena rock tour of Fall/Winter 2017. This marks the very first time that these two juggernauts have joined forces on the road together, and it’s a “can’t miss” moment for the genre and fans at large. The trek ravages arenas across Europe and the UK beginning in November, stopping in most major cities, and concluding December 21 at iconic Wembley Arena in London, UK. General ticket on sale will take place this Friday, June 16 at 10:00am local time.
Spotify and Live Nation have joined forces with Five Finger Death Punch and In Flames for a one-of-a-kind tour partnership featuring exclusive pre-sales, packages, and content from both bands. The tour has partnered with Spotify for an exclusive 24-hour pre-sale kicking off tomorrow for super fan listeners of both acts, Wednesday, Jun 14 at 10:00am local time. There will also be a Ticketmaster pre-sale starting on June 15 at 10:00am local time leading up to the general on sale the next day. See tour dates below. Additional show dates are anticipated to be announced in the near future. For exclusive VIP offerings, go to fivefingerdeathpunch.com and http://inflames.seetickets.com/tour/in-flames. Live Nation presents the tour with Spotify. German tour dates will be presented by Live Nation, Wizard Promotions, and Spotify.
5FDP guitarist Zoltan Bathory states: "We are currently playing all the European festivals and are having an amazing time. As these massive crowds are singing along every word of the lyrics, it feels like Europe is truly becoming the second home of Five Finger Death Punch. We can't wait to come back this Fall and especially with In Flames which is one of my favorite bands. This will be something special to see…”
In Flames singer Anders Fridén offers: “We’ve been lucky to play for so many Jesterheads around the World this year and can’t think of a better way to end 2017 than touring Europe with Five Finger Death Punch. We’ll see you soon Jesterheads and Knuckleheads. It’s going to be a tour to remember.”
Support on select EU dates and all UK dates of the tour comes from Of Mice And Men. The Orange County, CA-based band recently returned with two brand new songs, “Back To Me” and “Unbreakable,” via Rise Records. They performed a successful main stage set at Download Festival this past weekend and will be on tour across Europe throughout July. The band has sold over 700,000 records worldwide and previously toured with the likes of Linkin Park, Slipknot and Marilyn Manson.
Both Five Finger Death Punch and In Flames remain leaders of hard rock and heavy music worldwide:
Five Finger Death Punch’s crushingly epic 2015 sixth full-length studio album Got Your Six, hit new heights for the band around the world with chart-topping debuts in the US (#1 on Top Album chart, #1 on Overall Digital Album chart, #1 on the Hard Music Album chart, #2 on the Billboard Top 200) and internationally (Australia & Canada #3, Germany & Sweden #5, UK #6 Holland #17, Belgium #29 and France #32). The album was the sixth consecutive one to earn the Las Vegas rockers a RIAA Gold certification. Acclaimed by The Guardian and Classic Rock, it yielded four successive Active Rock smashes “Jekyll & Hyde” (50.4 million Spotify streams), #1 hit single “Wash It All Away” (32.9 million Spotify streams), “My Nemesis” #2 (16.29 million Spotify streams) and most recently “I Apologize” #3 (17.5 million Spotify streams). Refining their inimitable fusion of intricate instrumentation and undeniable hooks, Got Your Six represents yet another high watermark for the group who claim 17 consecutive Top 10 Hits, five #1 songs and frequently outsell the majority of bands in their genre.
12 albums into their storied career, In Flames reached new heights on 2016’s Battles—produced by GRAMMY Award winner Howard Benson [My Chemical Romance, Papa Roach], hitting Top 10 charts around the World with a #2 in Sweden, #3 in Finland and multiple other major countries such as Germany and Austria. Alternative Press, Metal Hammer, and more praised the record as the hit “The End” clocked over 6.6 million Spotify streams and counting. Most recently, they unleashed two new official music videos for their latest singles; first being “Here Until Forever” in May via Decibel, HERE and “Save Me” via European retail giant EMP, today upon announcement of the tour. Watch “Save Me” HERE

Cellar Darling, the much-hyped new band formed by ex-Eluveitie members Anna Murphy, Merlin Sutter and Ivo Henzi, will release their first studio album on June 30th. Together they will lead you away into their world of apocalyptic tales and heavy riffs, to awaken your imagination and stretch your musical tastes. This highly anticipated debut album with astounding 14 brand new tracks is entitled ‘This Is The Sound’.
“In less than a year we’ve formed a new band, written an album and come up with what we believe is our sound. This is who we are and we’re looking forward to what happens with it!” - Anna Murphy
"This is it: this is the result of nearly one year of incredibly intense creativity, of ups and downs, of loss and gain. This is the most personal work of our lives. This Is The Sound.” - Merlin Sutter
The band showcased their freshly recorded songs two weeks ago for the very first time:
"We’ve had the best time at our show in Lucerne earlier this month!", the band states. "For the first time, we got to play our brand new and freshly recorded songs live for you. We only wish that all of you who couldn’t make it, but who showed us such amazing support in the last year, could have been there with us. It was a magical and unique experience and we can’t wait for more.”
This was Cellar Darling’s very first performance after producing their debut album at New Sound Studio, under the watchful ear of the legendary producer and guitarist Tommy Vetterli (Coroner, Eluveitie). After an incredibly successful first show, the band will bring their new material, exclusively pre-release, to a few select clubs in Europe at the beginning of May. This is a unique chance to catch these intimate first shows before the release:
